The MacJury takes on the issue of royalty payments for the first three, free, months of the soon-to-be-launched Apple Music service. Who were they negotiating with? Were they negotiating with the right people? Does Taylor Swift really speak for the artists, for the labels, or just for herself? Was their a bad guy in the story, or was it all just a big PR stunt? The panel of Julio Ojeda-Zapata, Neal Pann, Guy Serle and host Chuck Joiner discuss it from every angle, to give you a different perspective on these events.

Guy Serle, best known for being one of the co-hosts of the MyMac Podcast, sincerely apologizes for anything he has done or caused to have happened while in possession of dangerous podcasting equipment. He should know better but being a blonde from Florida means he’s probably incapable of understanding the damage he has wrought. Guy is also the author of the novel, The Maltese Cube.
